Goods-to-person order fulfillment is being driven by economics; the demand for fulfillment is high. eCommerce direct-to-consumer business is growing very rapidly according to Derek Cribley, Director of Systems Engineering with Bastian Solutions for 17 years. Cribley said B2C demand is pushing the need for more individual piece picking, while the supply of labor is at a multi-year low. The lower reliability of conventional person-to-goods solutions makes the transition to goods-to-person technology more attractive.
Goods-to-person technology improvements make them more capable and available. The labor optimization, improved order turnaround rates, ergonomics improvements, and space reduction are additional benefits.
